  • CTTouring's Creston Thornton announced plans to brig six-to-eight concerts annually to CenturyLink Arena.

Comic and political commentator Dennis Miller is headed to Boise, Saturday, July 27, as part of a new contract between CenturyLink Arena and promotor Creston Thornton's company, CTTouring.

Officials with both companies announced the deal, which includes plans for CTTouring to produce six-to-eight shows per year at CenturyLink, during a drizzly press conference on the Grove Plaza this afternoon.

Thornton and his brother, Paul, previously booked shows at CenturyLink before the pair sold the Big Easy to national concert company, Knitting Factory.

"We're kind of getting back in business with a former partner of ours, and we're excited that CenturyLink Arena is going to have an exlusive partnership with CTTouring and Creston Thornton," said Eric Trapp, president of CenturyLink Arena and the Idaho Steelheads.

According to Thornton and Trapp, the arena can be configured to accommodate up to 5,000 attendees. Thornton said the space allows for shows with target audiences between that of the Idaho Center and his permanent venue, the Revolution Concert House and Event Center.

While Thornton wouldn't confirm any performances other than Miller's July 27 show, he said the venue's size offers a chance to attract national touring acts.

"I would think a lot of stuff that's touring—maybe Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore—I think there's a lot of acts at are hitting that 4-6,000 [capacity] mark," he said.

Tickets for Miller's performance go on sale Friday, May 31 at 10 a.m. at the CenturyLink Arena box office, online at centurylinkarenaboise.com, or by phone at 208-331-8497.
